  1. It’s not really a major mistake.. more like a slip of the toungue from someone who certainly didn’t know what an amazingly valuable item he really had !

  2. Chris, the two legs of the “moose” are part of the letter “ches” and the “head” is the letter “yud.” These two letters spell the hebrew word “Chai.”

  3. To #12: The meaning in Hebrew is ‘alive’, not life. Life in Hebrew is chaim. It also stands for the number 18 where Hebrew letters are assigned numerical values in their order in the alphabet. In this case the 8th letter and the 10th letter add up to 18, which is a lucky number in Jewish folklore.
